Return Policy

If merchandise is returned in brand new condition (including the original product packaging) within 30 days of purchase, a credit for the price paid for the merchandise will be issued to the original credit card used when purchasing the item(s). If the return is the result of our error (we shipped the wrong product or the item is defective), we will provide a full refund including shipping charges for the wrong or defective items. Unfortunately, shipping charges can not be refunded unless we shipped the wrong product or the item is defective or damaged. If returned merchandise is opened and/or unable to be resold, a partial store credit may be issued in the form of a discount coupon.

Order Policy

Products that are normally carried in inventory and are in-stock at the time of order will follow the shipping policy above. Our policies regarding backorders and pre-orders are below.


We allow customers to place a backorder for items that have been sold out in our store. Please understand that if you place an order for a backordered item, it may take longer than expected to receive your item due to the time it may take for us to receive the item from our supplier. We will work as quickly as possible to fulfill your order and ship your item.


We will sometimes release a product or product design (e.g. new t-shirt design) and make it available for pre-order. In this case, we have not yet submitted an order to our supplier for the items. We will submit an order to our supplier once the minimum order quantity has been reached. Please understand that if you place an order for an item listed as "pre-order," it may take several weeks for you to receive your item due to the time it may take for us to receive the item from our supplier. We will work as quickly as possible to fulfill your order and ship your item.
